Dongan Hills Colony

The East Shore of Staten Island has been a popular destination for visitors seeking both beautiful landscapes and refreshing sea breezes from the Lower Bay. Over the years, those visitors grew to love the area so much that they never left, building residences perched around the base of Todt Hill, all the way down to the shore's boardwalk, which came to be known as the Dongan Hills.

History of Dongan Hills Colony

After the construction of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge in 1964, the Colony became the go-to area for those looking for the convenience of access to Manhattan combined with the quietude of rolling hills that provide a lush backdrop for its residential streets. The area of the Colony, situated north of Richmond Road, is home to some of the finest, most opulent homes in all of the island. Italianate-style manses, stately Tudors, and grand Mediterranean-inspired estates populate the Colony, complete with stunning landscapes and shimmering in-ground pools. South of Richmond, pretty brick abodes and solidly-built houses line the streets, conveniently located close to the Franklin D. Roosevelt Boardwalk, the perfect place to jog, walk, and take in the fresh ocean air.
